“Parachute NYC: an alternative approach to mental health treatment and crisis services” has been awarded $17,608,085 to fund “a need-adapted treatment model (NATM) intervention for Medicaid beneficiaries and other people with serious mental illness who have a diagnosis of psychosis … the program will use peer health navigators, nurse practitioners, mobile crisis teams, and crisis respite centers to provide early engagement, continuity of care and combined peer and professional community service thus shifting the focus of care from crisis intervention to long-term, community-integrated treatment with access to primary care, improving crisis management and reducing emergency room visits and hospital admissions.”
